This reminds me of a DOS game I bought (for I think $5 at a computer show) 
back in the late 1980s. It had a small install routine that copied the 
program to the hard drive and overwrote autoexec.bat with the name of the 
executable file. In those days autoexec.bat could run to a couple of 
pages, with us all trying to make our machines a little faster and getting 
use of memory above 640k, which was a delicate thing. To say nothing of 
the TSR programs many of us ran. Setting comspec right after we copied to a RAM drive. That kind of thing. So autoexec.bat was a 
nontrivial thing, and turning a well-tuned machine into a single-game 
console was troublesome.
